The focus of Dr. Anne Schütz's research team is on virions, the pathogenic agents behind numerous infections afflicting humans. The team is interested in the molecular details of assembly and maturation of virus capsids and envelopes as well as antiviral strategies at the interface to the medical sciences. To this end, magnetic resonance methods are employed, complemented by electron microscopy and additional biophysical techniques.
Dr. Anne Schütz studied chemistry in Göttingen and pursued her PhD work at ETH Zurich in the field of magnetic resonance spectroscopy. After post-doctoral research at the University of Toronto, she joined TUM department of Chemistry as the head of an independent Emmy Noether research group.
